MSI's GE600 Gaming Notebook Hits the U.S.

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 31 comments

MSI today announced that the company's new GE600 gaming notebook is now available to customers in North America.

If Alienware's M11x gaming netbook just doesn't cut it with its 11.6-inch display, Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.3GHz) CPU, and Nvidia GT335M GPU why don't you go for MSI's 16-inch GE600 which packs Intel's new Core i5 processor and an ATI Radeon 5730 graphics card for around the same money?

In addition to Core i5 and a Radeon 5730 graphics card, the GE600 boasts a 16-inch 1366×768 display, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB hard drive (7200rpm), a 6-cell battery, Bluetooth and Microsoft’s Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

It's available today on Newegg with a price tag just shy of $900.

    It's hard to proofread your own work. Everything you read is what came straight from your mind, and it sounds very home-ish to you. It's your writing, from your mind, and your subconscious barely detects anything amiss.

    Now if someone else read the articles, however...

    I think this one is a typo. It should be i5 instead.

    It'd be great if whoever is a write for Tom's actually proof-reads their work before submitting.

    Pretty nice laptop, though.

    Hmm...
    Completely uninterested. :D 
    Though I still want a M11x (But with a much better CPU, GPU and LCD).

    Only 1366x768 for a 16" screen? Might as well throw in an older GPU and cut the price because that resolution is an insult the the 5730. And -1 for a glossy highly reflective screen, I can't stand glossy monitors when gaming. Needs more RAM too.

    do it still include the button to overclock on the fly? Im not talking about i5 increasing the CPU speed when cores are not active, but the button that "raises the TDP" style overclocking?

    Not bad for a cheap laptop. Asus G73jh is much better box tho, and if you go with the $1199 model it's an i7 with 500gb hdd and 6 gb ram.

    Wow! This gear at $900.00 is almost a must buy. I'm looking forward to get a gaming laptop this year and this one coming from MSI might be my choice.

    nice price, screen res still to low and show me the benchmarks at high settings. Tired of all these "gaming" laptops running benchmarks at low and ultra low settings to pump up their numbers. Seems the word gaming is just being thrown around casually these days.

    Would be nice if there was an upgraded model for a little more money, e.g., higher resolution screen and a SSD.

    I'm much more impressed with the MSI GX640 (except its CPU) - Core i5-430m (:( ), Mobility Radeon 5850 (w/GDDR5), 4GB RAM.

    We're still buying computers with 768 vertical pixels? Sad.
    When I bought a 15" laptop a couple of years ago I got a 1440x900 screen. Anything less and the pixels are huge.

    The hardware in these MSI laptops are usually a great value, but we have one at home and the keyboard is just terrible! They try and squeeze a full number pad onto a laptop keyboard and end up squishing all of the other keys, especially the shift button which just leads to more frustrations. It's a great value but really, what are they trying to do with this built in number pad it's not even needed.

    Not bad, especially for the price. Bought my GX630 about two years ago for way more and I love that laptop.
